Hey, @markyh444 , cheers!
@cole_eliot good luck. I tried to put a Pi Zero into a MK2 pad and ended up having to mount it on the back instead as there was nowhere near enough room for me to mount inside.
Yeah, I could see if have no chance there, I'm thinking a botched, non-standard, undercarriage that doesn't give me too much width and it'll be fine. As long as I can leverage the screws, etc, on the original pads casings, then I might be ok.
It is a really well built pad though, and well worth an attempt to turn into a handheld.
If you need any ideas, link to my project site is below.
Aye. As you can tell, I'm pretty fond of it.
I'll definitely go check out your site, I imagine I'll come across half the nasty issues that you did, too. I may also steal your ideas! Thanks!
For a really rough sketch of what I'm trying to do here (I'm no artist!):
Obviously missing its curves 😉
I'm thinking if I make it longer (at the pad end) to keep the screen central, I could get more room inside to keep it slimmer.
Look, it's not going to be pretty, but if I can get something vaguely presentable (might have to go matt finish), which works, then I'm on to a winner, and I'll consider making another but a bit more ... well made ;-)
